After a long walk fishing various likely spot and blanking. I settled down to another spot and changing bait to maggots and Filling the feeder with breadcrumb and crushed boilies. I Didnt have to wait long before the rod tip curled round and the fight was on. 5 mins later it was in the net and weighed 5.05 lb only fish of the day but a 5 lb chub all the same.
